A Tale of Two Cars…

Folks at The Self Love Project tagged me to do this story-behind-the-picture post.

The rules of the tag are:

  • Open your first photo folder.
  • Scroll down to the 10th photo.
  • Post that photo and story on your blog.
  • Tag others.

So, without further ado, here is the photo that made it to the limelight today, followed by the story behind it –

Twin Cars

Little more than a year ago, I went on a trip to Las Vegas with my friends. And this photo was taken on the second day of the trip when we went to visit the famous Hoover Dam.

After we were done sightseeing, we came back to our (rental) car to head back to Vegas and get on with the rest of the vacation plan. All our efforts at trying to open the car doors failed. Yes, we had the key, but for some reason it was of no use. We tried everything from banging the doors to begging to the car to open, but nothing worked.

It was a test of our patience vs. the car’s stubbornness, it looked like. And the car won. Well, almost…

Just as we gave up trying to open the doors, we realized something…we saw that the car parked next to ours was identical to ours. So all this time, instead of trying to open our car, we were trying hard to break into its twin. Twins they were, for sure. Not only were they of the same make, model and color, but also an almost identical license plate…ours was 238-VFD while the other was 236-VFD.

Weird, but true !

Now I tag – BlueMist, Nu, Meira and Sakshi.

P.S: Added quite a few photos to my Photoblog… go check that out !

    LOL… what an amazing story! I think I’ve done that once – but it was with a key – yep, I really was *that* out-to-lunch.

    So I know how embarassing this can be… what’s so weird is how similar your twin cars were! I mean, seriously, what are the chances?

    Anyway, thanks for playing picture tag with us! It was fun to peek into your world a little… 🙂

    yeah i know…it was a v weird coincidence :D…was fun, though :-)..

    Nice one. Sometimes truth is stranger than fiction. If you had a remote control, you would not have had this problem.

    🙂 yupe…hmm, it’s kinda strange that we didn’t have a remote..anyways. 😀

    😀 How come there wasn’t an anti theft alarm installed in the car! That would have created some scene!

    hmm…not sure…that would have been an experience then, had something like that happened :-P…

    i wonder what the owner of the twin would have felt, had he seen you breaking into his vehicle:D
